When Columbia, Missouri’s PS Gallery moved to the North Village, it was hard to imagine something else going into the space. Not only were the windows a mainstay of Broadway but the architectural elements seemed almost impossible to work around. But Talullah’s has taken the space and made it their own. It still has an artistic feel to it but instead of paintings, high end kitchen products are displayed like art.
I’ve heard some complaints for local foodie friends that the store is more frou-frou housewife than an outlet for cooks. And though they are right that they don’t have as many tools as I would like, I see a real effort to carry items that appeal to serious cooks. Sure they don’t have several different kinds of coffee presses, but they do carry one. And more gadgets than I ever dreamed of.
Beyond that debate, that have curated a selection of unique products that appeals to a wide audience. I challenge you to go in and gift shop without not finding something the recipient is going to like. For me the aprons and tableclothes as well as the Modern Twist line stood out. And I was happy to see a few gourmet snacks at the register. Since I visited they have start carrying St. Louis favorite Mom’s Originals pretzels so be sure to stop in for one.
As the ever shifting Broadway retail scene proves, it can be tough to make it as a local business in Columbia, Missouri. But Tallulah’s is making a strong start. Be sure to stop in to check them out for yourself. They are open Monday through Thursday and Saturday from 10:00am to 6:00pm. They stay open later until 8:00pm on Friday night for date night shoppers. And they are usually open on Sunday from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. They don’t have a website yet but you can visit them on their Facebook page. They offer free gift wrap, bridal registries, and will host special events like bridal showers.
